Box Office: 'Ralph' Still on Top, 'Aquaman' Rules China

Not much has changed at the box office from last weekend to now- Disney's Wreck It Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks The Internet is till on top, with The Grinch, and Creed II bringing second and third.

Warner Bros. aquatic superhero flick Aquaman debuted in China to a whooping $94 million, the best WB opening in that part of the world to date. This bodes well for the UK and US release, which is already being cited as healthy enough to prompt discussions of a sequel.

As BoxOfficeMojo reports:

Ralph brought in an estimated $16.1 million for the weekend, pushing its domestic cume just over $140 million. Meanwhile, The Grinch had the second smallest drop in the top ten, dipping just -15% compared to last weekend for a $15.17 million three day and a domestic cume approaching $225 million as the holiday themed animated feature is taking full advantage of the season.

The site also points out that this has been a rather slow weekend, all things considered. This marks the second weekend in a row of a decline in numbers.
